Punjab Kings and Chennai Super Kings will take on each other in the 38th match of IPL 2022. With three wins in seven outings, Punjab Kings need to make a strong comeback in order to qualify for the playoffs. Chennai Super Kings, meanwhile, have kept themselves afloat in the playoffs race with a win over Mumbai Indians in the previous match.
The game will be played at the Wankhede stadium, where the surface is good for batting and the shorter boundaries further help the batsmen. With the dew factor coming in, both teams will look to bowl first.
